Do stay away from spending doubloons on expendables, though. Not advisable. 

There's a mission available to earn one Commander (from a choice of two) for "free", as well.  🙂

I wonder what makes this the last time...

...and whether it's actually true...

I wouldn’t read too much into it. Per the article (emphasis mine): 

“You won't find any World of Warships packs that hold these marvelous Commanders in the foreseeable future, so don't miss your chance now!”

All this means is that the current collaboration is scheduled to end. Nothing is stated that rules out another stage of the collaboration in the future. I wouldn’t read anything more into this than standard FOMO marketing tactics, with WG looking to extract the last bit of cash before they would be required to renegotiate terms.

However, this very well might be the last collaboration, and it should be noted that this latest round of Hololive content was delayed by over a year: the datamined content was leaked in spring 2022, but didn’t show up for more than a year (no points for guessing why), leading many to suspect it had gone the way of the Hotwheels collaboration.

What nation are those for ? I could only find the information about the "free" ones. Neither in the article nor in the Armory can I see the nation of the commanders ...

Takanashi Kiara is for German ships, Moona Hoshinova for Pan Asian ships, Amelia Watson for American ships, Houshou Marine, Shishiro Botan and Shirakami Fubuki for Japanese ships.

Sad news. I was still hoping that one day we would get Usada Pekora and Gawr Gura as Commanders. :classic_sad:

Contract ending doesn't mean both Wargaming and Cover can't negotiate another at a later date. I wouldn't be shocked if we see both Gura and Mori in the future.

Have always thought vTubers & the Hololive characters were a bit silly and only the Waifu pillow crowd could only enjoy them. Really had no interest in them, would roll my eyes whenever I would see them or see these collaborations. Found their exaggerated prepubescent voices quite irritating more often than not.

Then I happened upon some Hololive-EN streams on YouTube playing Palworld the other day, and they are absolutely hilarious, lol. Had me laughing my butt off.

Then I watched a stream tonight of four Hololive-EN characters group playing Lethal Company and have to say I haven't laughed that hard in ages.

Guess that old adage applies here... Never judge a book by the cover.

"Just completely by accident, I happened upon that thing which I swore only weird people could possibly enjoy and I found that I enjoyed it..." 🤣

 

Saw a video of Flamu making a Whiskey Tango Alpha Foxtrot face at some noises Houshou Marine was making and now wondering if I shouldn't throw some dubs at it... 😈

She's worth the doubloons, in my opinion.

During the first Hololive collaboration, I liked them so much, that I bought another set, to have "twins" of Fubuki Shirakami and Houshou Marine.  🙂

I didn't say I found them by accident. I said I happened upon them. Was checking out Palworld streamers since it seems to be a bit controversial and the so called "IT" game at the moment, the Hololive channels had the most viewers, so I went in to see. So no, wasn't by accident, was a conscious choice. 😉

LOL. I was having a bit of fun with you, but the fact remains - you went looking for Palworld and by virtue of the viewer numbers stumbled into Hololive. If some other streamer had had better numbers, you would have gone there instead.

You did not specifically go looking for a Hololive stream. So it was happenstance. Fate - destiny - the will of Weeb - guided you. 😋

As a reward for completing a Hololive collaboration event mission, I welcomed Commander Moona Hoshinova (the 2nd.) (6 skill points) to my Port.

https://hololive.hololivepro.com/en/talents/moona-hoshinova/

I have just the credits part of the mission to go. Shouldn't be hard. Would have got it done today already, but there were some handyman jobs that needed doing and kids to be run to and from activities.
